NI Blogs — Butterfly To JeanC

Bent did Hucks Nation proud over the weekend at the big Smokin’ the Coeur d’Alenes BBQ at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds. Bent’s Rub ‘Em Raw BBQ team won 9th overall out of 29 teams, first in best of show, and 6th in the chicken competition. You can read Bent’s report on the event in the comments section of the 8:28 a.m. post: “Arpie: How did Smokin’ CDAs BBQ Go?” Above, Bent passes some barbecue ribs to Bert Thoreson for Father’s Day fare. Kerri Thoreson caught the passing of the ribs.

Arpie: How Did Smokin’ CDAs BBQ Go?

Arpie: I hope to hear a complete and thorough accounting of the (Smokin’ the Coeur d’Alenes) BBQ event this weekend. I didn’t make it. Anyone know how things went? How did Bent do? My favorite home brew Laughing Dog was there. I hope Bent got to spend some time with Fred. I heard of the possibility of tens of thousands of people. That seemed high. How many folks were there? I heard people that paid to get in didn’t get to eat the good stuff. What did they eat?

Question: Bent, do you have a report about the big barbecue at the fairgrounds, for you HucksOnline fans?

Bent: Certified BBQ Judges Wanted

Bent: Here is great deal for BBQ fans… ever want to be a certified BBQ judge — FOR FREE? Here is your chance… The Pacific Northwest BBQ Association is short of certified judges for the upcoming “Smokin’ The Coeur d’Alenes: Inland Northwest BBQ Championship.” There is a catch, though, the tr…aining and the event will be held on Father’s Day, June 20, at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds starting at 9 a.m. You must commit to judging on that day to get the certification for free (you will also get free admission to the two-day pitmasters event) … (More below)

Question: Do qualify to be a certified BBQ judge, you have to commit to judging on Father’s Day. Which isn’t a big deal for some. Father’s Day doesn’t seem to me to create the interest as Mother’s Day does. Or am I wrong?
